SOURCE: fuel pump is punping gas to carburetor....but

Fuel filter in carb is pulgged, there is usally a brass filter just behind the fuel line connection to the carb. that is plugged or worse yet you float needle valve is stuck. sometime you can losen the needle valve up by smacking the float bowl a couple of times with the plastic end of a screw driver. sometimes that will losen it up. Other wise you will have to remove the top of the carb and clean the float assembly.

remove the fuel line from the carb, put it into a bottle, crank the engine, If the bottle has fuel in it the fuel pump is working properly, if not, check the filter, and the fuel lines to the tank!!!

I need to ask a few questions and please do not think I am insulting you.
How much gas is in tank?
Is the gas good gas and not with water in it? Can you take any gas from the hose into a clear container and wait a minute and see if separation occurs?
Can you see gas squirt into carburetor when you pull on the accelerator cable or push the lever in on the carb? If you can see it..it is going into the intake and .most likely bad gas.
Lastly and another problem area is the fuel jet inside the carb is stuck or has an obstruction such as goo from bad gas?
This gives you some ideas on what to look for and thanks for using FixYa.

Not getting gas to carb


It could be. Since you have a carburetor, you must have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine? Only some imports with carburetors had an electrical pump.

If your filter is in the line just before the carburetor, take the line off at the filter, then crank the engine over to see if the pump is working. Mechanical fuel pumps will pump gas when the engine is cranking or running. Use a jar or can to catch the gas. If pump is working, fuel will come out in small spurts. It's not under high pressure- carbs don't need high pressure. If no gas comes out of the line, you probably need a new fuel pump. If the pump is working, it could be the filter, but could also be the needle valve and seat at the carb's fuel inlet. Sometimes they get stuck closed and won't let gas into the carburetor.

take a fuel pressure test on it , also see if your timing is right , you may still have a bad fuel pump in the tank ?. take a little ether and spray it into the intake and see if it starts that way if it does your fuel pump it bad,

Why wont my truck wont start?


there is probably a filter screen where the gas comes into the carb. Remove the gas line and the nut it screws into on the carb to find the screen.

I can pour gas into the carburetor and car starts, run until gas is gone fom carburetor. I disconnect hose from fuel pump to carburetor and do not see gas flow. Fuel pump has been replaced. Am thinking...


I would say more than likely your problem is a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. To narrow this down, listen for the fuel pump 'priming' (making a whining noise from the gas tank) turn the key to the On position and you should hear this whining for about 3 seconds, if you can hear this the fuel pump works fine, if not it is probably time for a new one. As for the fuel filter being that it is a 1987, I would replace it even if it is not clogged, the easiest way to test if it is clogged though is to blow at through it with your mouth and if you feel any resistance then it needs replacing.

U can see that the fuel pump is working but the car will not start. We have changed the fuel filter an there is gas getting to the carborator but very little. If u put gas directly into the carborator it...


There is a fuel pump relay but no pressure relay. If the pump is working then that eliminates the relay as the cause. I would disconect the fuel line to the carburetor and check the fuel pressure there. I believe it is supposed to be 12-14lbs. If it is less, the pump could be going bad.

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

Basically, my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L is turning over but doesn't start. I purchased some starting fluid and sprayed it into the carburetor. After that, it starts for a few seconds, but...


Your fuel pump is in the gas tank. Before going there check the relay and all attending fuses as well as the fuel filter (on top of pump/sending unit)
If you can't hear the pump running when you first turn the key on, likely it is electrical. If you can, then could be the filter. There are other reasons for your problem but start with the easier common stuff.

My 1997 Chevy 4 dr 4x4 has fuel delivery problems.


try replacing your relay first not that expensive and easy to change also some models have a red jumper wire on the relay plug that sends power directly to pump

Discovery land rover will not fire.


try taking the air cleaner assembly off you might not be getting enough air to engine
if this is the case then the throttle body needs to be maintenanced

heres another suggestion it just hasnt sucked gas to the engine to crank over sometimes they help

go out buy an electric fuel pump
find the fuel inlet source to engine hook up electric fuel pump
attach only ground to something in engine compartment
then get a can so that when gas comes out it has something to go into
tap the electric fuel pump power lead to the positive of battery let run till gas comes out make sure not to spark your working with gas
once gas becomes present detach electric fuel pump all the way set aside
hook gas line back to port and then start vehicle this should start

also with fuel filters there are 3 on a vehicle
one in engine compartment
one on chassis back by the tank
and one in the tank called the sending unit this has a filter in the tank this one could be clogged
make sure these filters are in the right position with gas flow flowing in right direction
